Alicia began her career at the ripe age of 10 when her grandmother gave her an old re-conditioned typewriter. The moment she touched the keys she felt like a literary genius. It took thirty years for Alicia to accept her calling as a writer of "unusual stories." Always writing stories that evoked the fantastic mixed with imagination, violence, fast-paced, heart-pumping, romantic, and sometimes horrific, she learned to hide her wild and outlandish stories from family and friends.
It wasn't until she joined RWA that she began to share her stories openly and take the plunge. Alicia writes for both new adults and adults with her brand of multicultural urban fantasy, futurism, paranormal, romance, and horror. Alicia is a native Detroiter who currently resides in metro Atlanta. She works as a media specialist or school librarian in a local school district. Alicia enjoys spending time with her husband and son.
Her first book for new adults, Breaking Free, is available in print or for immediate download. She also has an adult series that mixes African-American women's fiction with the paranormal.
